Emily Ratajkowski Announces Pregnancy Through Vogue

Emily Ratajkowski revealed that she’s pregnant via Vogue’s Digital Issue Cover. There’s also an accompanying short video directed by Lena Dunham, which Dunham calls the “opposite of a People magazine baby announcement.”

-Speaking of Vogue, a new NYT report accused Anna Wintour of cultivating a toxic climate that has “sidelined and tokenized women of color, especially Black women” at the magazine.

Dominic West and Lily James‘ romantic jaunt around Rome didn’t just get them in the gossip spotlight; it might also get them fined because you’re not supposed to ride scooters together in covid.

Drake celebrated his 34th birthday over the weekend, and people are disgusted that he served a mac ‘n cheese that included raisins and capers.

-It’s been a big day for the moon! NASA announced there’s more water on the moon than previously thought, and Oscar Isaac is in negotiations to star as Moon Night in Marvel’s forthcoming Disney+ series. He was previously pretty adamant about not playing Poe on a Disney+ series, but that was before covid killed movies (not to mention this new project keeps him far away from the Star Wards fandom).

-Comedian Eric Andre talked about Ellen Degeneres being “cancelled” for being mean. “James Corden is fucked if that’s the only criteria to get called out. James Corden and Lorne Michaels are screwed! They’re trembling in their fucking boots.”

Bette Midler said that she, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy would all be down for a Hocus Pocus sequel. Please Hollywood, we ask for so little!

Midler, Parker and Najimy also shot a cute voting PSA, complete with spell chanting.

-I love when celebs don’t know the difference between replies and DMs.

Nicole Kidman is pulling double duty for HBO. Not only does she star in the new limited series The Undoing, she also sings its theme song.

Drew Barrymore tearfully opened up on her divorce from Will Kopelman during an interview with the Today Show, saying “I couldn’t make sense of it. I really did not take divorce well. I took it really hard…I know from not growing up with any family whatsoever that that was the last thing that I wanted to do for my daughters. It was, like, ugh the ultimate promise I wanted to make with you and for you was to have this amazing family and I found that and there’s something not working, that isn’t livable. How tragic is that?”

Octavia Spencer says her favourite birthday message this year came from Keanu Reeves, who once helped her when her car broke down on the way to an audition.

-The former DJ on Wendy Williams‘ show jumped in to comment when people were posting that she seemed distracted on Friday’s episode, saying “Y’all have no idea what’s really going on and everyone there is afraid to speak up because they don’t wanna lose their jobs.. this is going to play out bad.. I feel sorry for the workers and victims.”

-Today, Williams seemed to address Friday’s weirdness, saying “I appreciate you watching, but even after all of these years, it’s still work. An effort put in for the hour I’m out here, you know? I guess every day is not perfect, but I’m not a perfectionist. I’m not perfect.”

Hugh Grant says he’d do a Notting Hill sequel because “I would like to do a sequel to one of my own romantic comedies that shows what happened after those films ended. Really, to prove the terrible lie that they all were, that it was a happy ending.” Look man, life has been rough this year. Just let us keep this one little thing.

-It feels like I watched Normal People 9 million years ago (it was in May) so I should probably be over my Paul Mescal crush, but this new GQ photo spread just pulled me back in. This is some Chris-Evans-in-Knives-Out levels of sweater perfection.

Zac Efron‘s girlfriend Vanessa Valladares threw him a star-studded surprise birthday party this weekend. Wait, is the pandemic over and nobody told me?!

Chris Pratt was trending on Twitter this weekend because most of the Avengers cast is assembling for a Biden fundraiser, and he’s the notable absence.  Who’s still surprised that this guy is most likely a Republican? Did we all forget that Ellen Page called him out for supporting an anti-LGBTQ church?

-It seems like only Canadians appreciated the “BonjourHi” sketch on SNL but Bowen Yang killed it. I also thought this cut sketch about Lovecraft County was also good in that they’re right — that show is impossible to describe.

Adele is hosting SNL next weekend, and I’m already exhausted by the discourse around her weight loss (and the thought that they might do a sketch about it.)

Harry Styles got a haircut and fans are all up in their feelings.

R Kelly‘s lawyers say he was beaten in jail and “no one raised a finger.” Presumably the ones who did the beating did though.

-A judge just ruled that Danny Masterson‘s rape case will go forward in court after the actor’s lawyers tried to get it tossed out.

-Black Panther’s Winston Duke had insomnia and spent the night posting shirtless thirst traps. That’s the kind of middle-of-the-night productivity I appreciate!

Cardi B deleted her Twitter account following her reconciliation with Offset, saying she’s tired of “a bunch of 15-year-olds telling me how to live my life.” She should probably avoid her Insta comments too then.

-Oh god, Kanye West is going to be on Joe Rogan’s podcast next week. I just can’t with either of them.

-Hahahaha – one of the kids from Home Improvement is getting divorced, and copy and pasted his announcement from Armie Hammer. Of all the ones out there to crib, you choose that one?!?

-Speaking of Hammer, his Rebecca costar Lily James is pulling out of interviews after those photos of her and Dominic West surfaced — reportedly because some of the bigger outlets are insisting she address it. I was actually surprised that she was still doing them last week (though not surprised by how awkward she was).

-I really, really liked Olivia Dade‘s new book and this interview on fat representation makes me like it even more.

-I haven’t watched The Trial of the Chicago 7, but there’s a ton of supercuts floating around of dialogue being directly lifted from Aaron Sorkin’s past projects. He remains the master at recycling old bits.

-Sony is denying rumors that originated from a sketchy fan site about Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire joining the cast of Spider-Man 3.

-I really liked this article on Bryan Fuller, shipping and fandom’s purity culture.

-CBS All Access just dropped a new trailer for The Stand. I couldn’t imagine another mini-series I’d want to watch less in the middle of a pandemic.

Kurt Russell’s Hot Santa is back to save Christmas in the trailer for The Christmas Chronicles 2.

-The trailer for All My Life is here and I’m definitely down to watch Harry Shum Jr as the lead in a romantic drama.

Matthew McConaughey’s a Family Man for People

Matthew-McConaughey memoir

Matthew McConaughey is promoting his new memoir, but the interviews he’s giving aren’t making me want to rush out and buy it. On parenthood, he tells People “The only thing I ever knew I wanted to be was a father. And it’s remained the pinnacle for me. Being a dad was always my only dream. I can’t think of anything being more important” and says of his marriage to Camila Alves: “I can tell you this: I’m happy and confident to say our kids do not question the love we have in our family”. Look man, ya gotta give us something more, especially because Mariah Carey just delivered such juiciness.

-I see we’re at that tedious point of the gossip cycle where every recent interview with Lily James is being combed over for clues to her relationship with Dominic West. Goodie.

-Meanwhile, West’s camp is trying to spin it that he’s just a big teddy bear who likes to get touchy-feely with his friends. Mmmhmmm.

Bella Hadid is dating Jack Nicholson’s grandson and everyone’s saying he looks like John Mayer, but I’m seeing Billie Joe Armstrong?

-Despite the TV industry being awash in “un-renewals” for shows we actually want to come back, they keep reviving shows no one wants. Case in point: Dexter is coming back, with Michael C. Hall reprising the main role.

-Also, as soon as the news broke, a writer on the original series tweeted: “That time I was on a show with a male lead and I’d recommended 2 women directors for upcoming episodes and the showrunner never responded so I mentioned it again and he literally screamed at me, ‘A WOMAN WILL NEVER DIRECT THIS SHOW, OKAY?'”

-Speaking of reboots, one of the stars of the new Charmed show, Sarah Jeffery, criticized Holly Marie Combs and Rose McGowan of the original series for publicly disparaging the new version. Combs then responded and it’s, um, not great.  Meanwhile, Jeffery says Charmed OG Shannen Doherty has been nothing but kind.

-A wave of stars quit the Bon Appetit Test Kitchen earlier this year after reckoning with racism, pay disparity, and a toxic work culture. Now there’s a trailer featuring a lot of new faces.

-Meanwhile, former Test Kitchen star Sohla El-Waylly was interviewed by E. Alex Jung and the result is a scorcher of a profile.  “The fact is Brad [Leone]’s show did do very well. For some reason, people like watching a big dumb white guy. But why? What does that say about the audience? Why do you want to watch this incompetent white man when we have one in the fucking Oval Office?”

-This is a great profile on Pedro Pascal, who says to play the villain in Wonder Woman 1984 he turned his script into a pop-art scrapbook. One page features Max surrounded by text bubbles into which he wrote over and over again, ‘You are a f*cking piece of shit’.

-Here’s the first trailer for This Is Us’ two-hour season premiere, which airs Oct 27.

Cardi B accidentally shared a topless photo on Instagram, and doesn’t seem to bothered by it: “It is what it is. S–t happens. F–k it, it’s not even the first time. I mean, I used to f—ing be a stripper so whatever. Ay, Dios mío.”

-Meanwhile, there’s talk that Cardi and Nicki Minaj are putting their beef behind them and coming together for a collab. This is the miracle 2020 needs!

-Also something we need: Ariana Grande‘s next album, which she says is coming this month.

James Van Der Beek took to Instagram to explain why he packed up his family and moved to Texas: “In the last ten months, we’ve had two late-term pregnancy losses, each of which put @vanderkimberly in the hospital, we spent Christmas break thinking she had a tumor (the doctor was wrong, thank god), a business colleague I hired hijacked the project and stabbed me in the back, I was prematurely booted off a reality dancing show I was favored to win in front of the whole world, and my mom died.” Yeah, that’ll do it.

Cate Blanchett interviewed her idol, photographer Gregory Crewdson, about his latest exhibit, which blends the nostalgia of an Edward Hopper painting with some of America’s thorniest issues.

Jason Momoa is back in Toronto shooting his Apple show and I love that sightings of him are all over social.

Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha star in the new trailer for Amazon’s Christmas romance Sylvie’s Love. This was a huge hit at Sundance so I’m very happy it’ll be streaming instead of at theatres.

-The trailer for Hillbilly Elegy starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close dropped today, and Twitter was quick to eviscerate it, calling it “conservative poverty porn” and comparing it to indie film spoofs.
